Peghead Nation Demos a Gretsch G9410 Broadkaster Special Banjo

Posted:

Bill Evans, banjo instructor for Peghead Nation, recently tested out a Gretsch G9410 Broadkaster Special Banjo.

In his video review, Evans discussed the finish, tone and playability of the Roots Collection instrument.

“The geared fifth-string peg is a nice thing to have on a banjo at this price level,” noted Evans. “Cheaper banjos will sometimes have a peg that is not geared, and they’re harder to tune.”

Hear AC/DC’s New ‘Rock or Bust’

Posted:

Classic rock giants AC/DC have released an official audio stream of “Rock or Bust,” the title track to their upcoming Dec. 2 album.

Coming in at just over three minutes, the anthemic tune features a stuttering rhythm guitar throughout and a bluesy solo by Angus Young at the midway point.

While the album does not feature Malcolm Young, who retired from the band due to dementia, its 11 songs credit both brothers. The songs were reportedly largely built by Angus from guitar hooks he and Malcolm accumulated while writing previous AC/DC records.

Young’s nephew, Stevie Young, played rhythm guitar in Malcolm’s stead on Rock or Bust. He will also be filling in for the elder Young on the group’s upcoming world tour in 2015.
